(PresidentialWire.com)- A federal judge has ruled that the mask mandate implemented by far-left House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in the House of Representatives didn’t violate the First Amendment, as was argued by Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Ralph Norman, and Thomas Massie.
The three Republican legislators filed a lawsuit against Pelosi and Capitol Hill administrators over the matter long before Pelosi and her colleagues dropped the mandate so President Joe Biden could deliver his State of the Union address without it
D.C. District Court Judge Reggie Walton argued that the three legislators had “myriad means of expressing their state messages, including wearing masks or other clothing containing the messages they wanted to convey, or making speeches from the House Chamber of elsewhere on the subject.”
Perhaps it’s right that the mask mandate didn’t technically violate the First Amendment, but it did certainly violate their rights.
The judge also claimed that the arguments from the three legislators that the fines they were forced to pay for not wearing masks didn’t affect their salaries, suggesting that the thousands of dollars in fines they faced every time they didn’t wear a mask were “vague, generalized, and unsupported.”
Uh, really? Green was fined $48,000 last year for not wearing a mask in the Capitol Building. How is that unsupported and vague?
Sometimes it feels as though judges in this country are extensions of the Democratic Party.
